Alpha (Α, α) is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. In the system of Greek Numerals, it has a value of 1.
The area of a circle is calculated using the formula: A = πr2 where r represents the circles radius.
The area of an equilateral triangle is calculated using the formula: A = s2√ 3 ⁄4 where s represents the equilateral triangles common side length.
Beta (Β, β) is the second letter of the Greek Alphabet. In the system of Greek Numerals, it has a value of 2.
Gamma (Γ, γ) is the third letter of the Greek alphabet. In the system of Greek numerals it has a value of 3.
The Greek alphabet has been used to write the Greek language since the late ninth or early eighth century BC. It is derived from the earlier Phoenician alphabet, and was the first alphabetic script in history to have distinct letters for vowels as well as consonants.

Triangulation is a process in trigonometry and geometry of determining the direction and or distance to an object or point from two or more observation points.
The unit circle is a circle with a radius of 1 which is centered at the origin on the x-y plane.
Unit circle trig definitions are a set of definitions of the trigonometric functions sine, cosine, tangent, cosecant, secant, and cotangent all of which are derived from the unit circle.
In physics, the wavelength is the spatial period of a periodic wave. In other terms the distance over which the wave\'s shape repeats.
